Centella asiatica, also known as gotu kola and pennywort

Herbal Remedy to Treat Aging Skin

Gotu kola can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.

Gotu kola (Centella asiatica) cream may be a natural treatment to improve aging skin. As we age, sun damage and other factors can cause our skin to dry out and become wrinkled, rough, and sagging. The anti-inflammatory and collagen-supporting properties of the phytochemical madecassoside from gotu kola, used in an anti-aging cream, can help prevent and treat skin damage, wrinkles, and aging skin.5

In one double-blind clinical study, two-thirds of the female participants with sun-damaged skin who used cream with 0.1% madecassoside over a 6-month period showed marked improvement in wrinkles (even deep ones), elasticity, and skin texture. Significantly, the results revealed actual structural changes to the photo-aged skin—repairing the underlying damage caused by chronic sun exposure.5
